  • Last Updated : 11 May, 2021

In this article we will see how we can find movies that have similar keyword. Keyword is a word (or group of connected words) attached to a title (movie / TV series / TV episode) to describe any notable object, concept, style or action that takes place during a title. The main purpose of keywords is to allow visitors to easily search and discover titles.
